Is there anyway of viewing what a bios update file says in "normal english type"? when i open the file in notepad all you see is computer symbol "gobledegook"
I don't think that a bios update file does "normal english type" - it's computer code.Do you want to find out what the update does? If so, the bios site should tell you.
Not sure but a Hex editor would probably let you view and text strings in the BIOS file.
"And text strings" should read "any text strings".
Why do you want to view it - it's just a program, and programs are not *english text*.
karmgord probably wants to get some clues as to any possible BIOS updates, any Text strings should be viewable, is that a proper word?Any program that displays a message, of any description, must have it embedded as ASCII text somewhere.having said that, he may not glean much information from a BIOS file.
You can get BIOS file viewers / editors but they are usually dedicated to one type of BIOS or GPU. Such as click here nVidia BIOS Modifier (v3.2)
i wanted to see if there is a list of supported cpu s
You should get that from the BIOS manufacturer site.
